Chocolate Cherry EOTD, boots!
I apologize for my lack of posting! This was my last week of school before break, so I was doing a lot. But now that I'm on break, I will hopefully be blogging a lot more! My EOTD yesterday was inspired by a few different blogger's recent looks. I had also just used some hair cream tht smelled JUST like maraschino cherries, so I decided to do a brown and red look. Sadly, it didn't turn out very well. What I used: Tutankhamun, by Meow (inner lid) Chocolate Lover Gone Bad, by The She Space (outer lid) Zinfandel, an Aromaleigh PURE HUE color (attempted v's which totally failed) Voluminous by L'Oreal mascara Covergirl eyeliner in brown black e.l.f. lip gloss in New York City (the picture doesn't show it well, it's very pink-red) It didn't look bad or anything, it just wasn't how I would have liked. The zinfandel is almost more of a glitter than a shadow, so I was having a hard time working with that. But I really liked my outfit, so here's a picture. :) My dad's huge old 90's sweater! So cool! Black bow headband, red tights, and my Payless sweater boots. :3 I love those boots. Why anyone would pay so much for Uggs is beyond me... I don't like the suede (their sweater boots are cute though). I tried on my friend's and they felt exactly the same as my $40 Payless boots. Now I feel like talking about my love of cutesy furry boots... here are some I got for $20 at Target (I think they are technically slippers, but they have a hard sole so I wear them everywhere). My mom wants to burn these, she thinks they're hideous. There was a really cute pair I saw in an Avon catalogue, but it's not on the website anymore. Darn. :( Yesterday I painted my nails with Orly's "Iron Butterfly", from their new metallic matte collection everyone's talking about. My nail pictures looked like crap, as usual, so here's a link to Phyrra's picture. Spot on what it looked like to me. Pros: dries in about 4 seconds, literally. Cons: EXTREMELY chippy. I don't use base or top coats because I lost all mine, but I was getting chips even just a couple hours after application. I already had to take it off. So I'd say it's great for a special event or something, but you can't really wear it all day.
